Saving for now and the future is one of the most important steps you can take towards financial freedom. Whether you want to own a house, there’s something you want to do, a place you want to visit, or you simply want to secure your financial future, saving is a way of turning these dreams into a reality.

Having some savings set aside also means you’re prepared for the unexpected. If you lose your job, need emergency repairs to your car or home, you'll have money to fall back on. Learn more about planning for rainy day.

Rather than stashing your cash under your mattress, a savings account is a practical and secure way to build your savings. A savings account can help you:

  • Avoid spending your savings: Keeping your savings in a separate account, away from your everyday spending account, makes it a little harder to unintentionally spend your savings.
  • Save more: You’ll earn interest on the money you’ve put away - helping you reach your goals sooner. See how much you can potentially save with our savings calculator.
  • Track your progress: You’ll be able to see how much you’ve saved, keeping you motivated to build your balance.

Saving together? If you’re in a relationship, a joint savings account is a great way of working towards a shared goal. It can be a great first step to combining your finances. See our guide to saving together.
